It turns out that catching the Sub at the Sub Stop isn't much different than our Bus Stops and Subways.

The Octopus with the several electronic devices made me laugh quite a bit. Great job! I would buy that in a hurry.

Wow, this is the most clever design I've seen in a long time. Did you come up with this idea during the derby theme, or did you have the idea before it?

Thank you! All of my submissions to the Woot derby are thought up specifically for the theme. I don't ever remember subbing something that was already pre-made or partially complete.

I had no real good ideas Thursday. Friday I was messing with some ideas of a Sub Stop and one of my first ideas with someone with cement feet. I combined the two and then it all started coming together nicely Friday night with the other characters and then Saturday I did the real thing. One of my few 4 color entries. I usually always use all 6.

There's so many ideas combined and fitting into one concept that I find it really impressive that you hadn't been thinking on it for longer than that. Really great work.

Sometimes things come together by luck or new ideas come to you as you work. I definitely didn't just picture this whole scene in my head at once. It came about over several hours of messing around with different things. I just keep messing with the ideas until it falls into place and I say "Yeah that's it!". Sometimes it's quick, sometimes it takes a long time. This was a bit in the middle I guess. Either way, this is why I didn't submit it until Saturday evening.

Homeless shark warms my heart.
This better print, I don't have a baby blue shirt yet.

I never thought of it, but crabs look biologically set up for texting. I will never look at someone texting the same again. +1

I LOVE this! I really hope it gets movin' on up! There are so many great details here, I can't even decide which I like best. The texting crab...the gadget geek octopus...the hobo shark...the dead body. It's hilarious! I love shirts like this because every time you look at it you notice things you didn't before, and it just gets funnier each time! Kudos! Definitely GMV!

The best part here is that he's just arrived, so not quite dead yet, but in about 60 or so seconds....

I love the cement man, he just looks so nonchalant while he drowns and a homeless shark asks him for change. oh gosh. :3

I really hope you get to the top because I want this shirt. The shadings are fantastic and the level of detail is incredible. Good luck.

Good God that's funny - my favourite colour, too :-) I want one !

I would have added something to the shark; make the caudal and dorsal fins stumps and cover with bandages. This would explain the wheelchair. Perhaps add some subtle Asian features to Sharkey, as well.

Of course, I would not have cooked up this ingenious design...so nevermind.

I hope this gets printed.

i don't think he is. he lost a tooth, and clearly can't afford a razor. and his tail looks athrophied.

me, i'm wondering about the man in diver suit. is he dead? drunk?
is it even a human at all?

I will buy one at double the normal price right now.

And normally I wouldn't wear powder blue if someone pointed a gun at my head.

Stating the obvious here probably but... No one else pointed out that "sub" is an anagram of "bus"

It could possibly be why the title is purposely written as "Waiting for the suB" and not "Waiting for the Sub" ;)

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • In a brand new life with a great big house and green initials on the towels.

Is it my imagination, or does the octopus have a bit of screen glow on his face, especially in his eyes? Very cool hint of detail there.
